I recently obtained a waffle iron and of course, the first thing I wanted to do was find a solid waffle recipe! Luckily, I found this easy recipe from Martha Stewart. I would trust pretty much any recipe from Martha Stewart because her stuff is always amazing! It was much easier than most of the other recipes I was looking at, too, and I tend to have most of the ingredients on hand on a normal day.
The waffles turned out really well! They are thin, crispy waffles instead of fluffy, Belgian-like waffles. However, they have a great flavor and are not overly sweet. The batter seems thin when you first make it, but the waffles turned out perfect in the end. Two thumbs up!
I’ve pasted the recipe below for convenience. We served them with maple syrup and strawberry jam.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
- 4 tbsp butter, melted
- Prepare your waffle iron according to its instructions.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs.
- Gently whisk the milk and eggs into the flour mixture until combined. Do not overmix.
- Gently whisk in the butter.
- If desired, spray your waffle iron with cooking spray. Cook waffles according to waffle iron instruction. (Typically 2-3 minutes, until deep brown and crisp)
